Midsummer

Theatre Adventure Presents

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM

  Shakespeare is alive and well with the Theatre Adventure Thursday Troupe!  Last year’s foray with Romeo and Juliet afforded tremendous opportunities to begin the great adventure of learning about the famous Bard and his rhythmic language as well as his outrageous storylines with complicated relationships and plot twists. 

This year’s production, A Midsummer Night’s Dream promises to be an unforgettable experience for audiences.  The actors have embraced their characters from “the inside out.” Egeus embodies the emotions of a father who feels betrayed by his daughter Hermia.  In contrast, Hermia presents two distinct sides---as the headstrong daughter standing up to her father and the young woman hopelessly in love with Lysander. 

Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, heads the Court with wisdom as well as sympathy toward  Hermia’s dilemma. Demetrius, played by three actors, also presents various conflicting emotions---as the “chosen one” by Egeus of which he is proud, but also by the persistent Helena, of which he barely tolerates. Bottom, played by two actors skillfully uses pantomime as the clown of the story.  And of course, Puck, Oberon, Titania, and several other fairies, bring to the story magic, whimsy, and power of another sort.

Hot L Baltimore

THE HOT L BALTIMORE

Written by Lanford Wilson

Directed by Hallie Flower


Sponsored by Grace Cottage Hospital
also Sponsored by The Brattleboro Oultlet Center 


The Hotel Baltimore used to be the swankiest place in town—now it has a date with the wrecking ball. Eviction notices just went out to its residents, who live on the fringes of society and call the once elegant; now tarnished hotel home. This acclaimed play from author Lanford Wilson (set in 1973) is filled with everyday humanity—unexpectedly intimate and moving. The Hot L Baltimore reveals the lives of an unconventional community about to be set adrift once more.
